Following the death of her best friend, Iris and her family move to Oregon for a fresh start in this middle-grade story of miracles, magic, rain, hope, and a hairless cat named Charles.

Sixth-grader Iris Abernathy hates life in Corvallis, Oregon, where her family just moved. It’s always raining, and everything is so wet. Besides, nothing has felt right since Iris’s best friend, Sarah, died.
     When Iris meets Boris, an awkward mouth-breather with a know-it-all personality, she’s not looking to make a new friend, but it beats eating lunch alone. Then she learns that Boris’s very existence is a medical mystery, maybe even a miracle, and Iris starts to wonder why some people get miracles and others don’t. And if one miracle is possible, can another one be too? Can she possibly communicate with Sarah again?

Baker & Taylor
Unhappy about moving from sunny California to rainy Corvallis, Oregon, and grieving over the death of her best friend, sixth-grader Iris looks for a miracle and may find one in new friend Boris.

This book is my second favorite book of all time, and I can't really explain why, it just does. There is so much emotion that occurs throughout the book, including Iris's background, Boris's background, their time together, and so much more. I totally recommend for anyone looking for a book that is heart touching and a good book just to curl up and read for hours. 5 stars!!!!!

This is a sweet story about a girl who is grieving the loss of her best friend and questioning the existence of miracles. Her emotions come across fully realized and sincere and I would find myself relating often.
